    MPC #159 Stopped Action 2/3-3/27

    Edited to extend deadline.

    With a dry January and some storms stacking up on the west coast seems like a good time to take some action photos. Sports action, kids in play, wildlife in motion, whatever your inspiration; up the shutter speed and stop the action.



    RULES:

    1. Photos must be taken within the time period of the contest.
    2. You may submit 3 photos during the competition.
    3. The contest moderator will choose 5 (or 6) photos to be voted on.
    4. The winner will get a happy feeling in his/her pants. (That is a rule by the way, not an option.)
    5. In the event of a tie, the contest moderator will have the deciding vote.
    6. Winner will be the contest starter/moderator for the next comp.
    7. The winner has 3 days to start a new contest or 2nd place becomes the new winner.
    8. And have fun.

    Since there was a pretty poor showing last contest, what about pushing this one until the end of March? That should open up more possibilities with both skiing and biking (and some warm-weather stuff in the southwest and southeast, too).

    Aim for the chopping block. If you aim for the wood, you will have nothing. Aim past the wood, aim through the wood.

    Pond hockey tournament across the street plus fireworks. They didn't have the courtesy to do any great hockey stops in front of an exploding firework though

Worked great.
